52 Best Gifts For College Students On Amazon And More, Whether They're Living In Dorms Or Abroad

And, none of these break the bank!

College students are always in need of something, whether it’s supplies, a new appliance, or a gadget that will make their life easier. That’s why they can be so easy to please, but so hard to shop for because of all the endless options.

For that reason, it's important to always get a head start on gift-shopping for the college student in your life—whether it's back-to-school season, the hectic holidays, or you're just searching for a birthday gift they'll actually love and use.

Peep some of the best gifts for college students below:


Oftentimes, college is a student's first time away from home, so they're truly living a life of self-accountability (unless they're a graduate student). That means basic necessities like dorm-compliant appliances and bedding can really help out. It’s also important to keep in mind that not all of their time is spent studying. A social life is a major component of the college experience, so anything that increases their social capital makes for a great gift.

So stop procrastinating like a college student and browse this list of the best gifts any college student will love. There is something for everyone.
